    Hello erastus58. I'm sorry you are having problems with your Ace 3. The contact app is most likely still in your app drawer. You might try simply rebooting the phone by removing the battery for a minute. Sometimes that will remedy such annoying problems. You might want to check into the discussion area for your Ace 3 as well for additional help. I hope this helps. Thanks for joining and using these forums.

    Hi and thanks for this, I did try this several times without any success. However I went into the 'Manage Applications' area and found that both were still showing as being on the phone, so I did a disable and enable and the icons came back to my app pages and from there i was able to relocate the shortcuts to my homepage. So all done and back in business!
